New interactive 3D mapping project celebrates historic gem and Lunar New Year

Did you know that Calgary’s Chinatown had two other locations prior to its current one? Or that community organizers in Chinatown were instrumental in stopping proposals to redevelop the south bank of the Bow River as a major freeway? These and other amazing stories tied to Chinatown buildings, both past and present, are now available online at Reflective Urbanisms: Mapping Calgary Chinatown.
 
Reflective Urbanisms is an exciting project recently launched as part of the Calgary Chinatown Artist Residency, with support from our department and The New Gallery. Created by artist and architect Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong, the project visualizes physical and cultural changes in Chinatown through interactive 3D mapping as a way to share its history.
 
Take a virtual tour and/or visit Chinatown during the Lunar New Year, Feb. 1-15, to learn more about this cultural gem in the heart of our city.
